The title says it all really.

Yesterday I ported to Telecom and want to ring vf to cancel my account. Their website only shows 0800 800 021 which is the automated menu. If I select on account, account info, it goes to a menu with four options, all automated.

Going to a vf store is not feasible as the nearest store is 80km away.

Anyone know a number I can call to actually speak with someone who can cancel my account?

You shouldn't have to do anything. Once the porting is done the account will be closed, pending any balance payments.

I thought that too but the sales person at Telecom told me to ring up and cancel the account. I want to make sure because I got caught out changing ISP about six months ago which ended up costing me another $70.

Hopefully Paul or John will confirm.

From memory, the 4th option is "press 4 if you aren't currently a Vodafone customer" - I used that.

If you port a number the connection is deactivated

Telecom person is incorrect
